Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Telltale Games' episodic series, The Walking Dead. Based on the series by Robert Kirkman, the adventure follows the story of a band of zombie apocalypse survivors. Each episode following the first is uniquely tailored to the choices players made in previous installments.

Here's an excerpt:

On the plus side, the voice acting, zombie growls, and sound effects are all quite good. It makes it really easy to get immersed in The Walking Dead for hours, just continuing the story along to see what happens. Each interaction tends to be very well-written, and the dialogue is read with about the same quality you'd expect from a television show. The voice for the little girl you encounter can get a little annoying sometimes, but she does her part reasonably well in the end. The music also does a good job at setting the mood with quite a few tunes to keep you on edge while evading the zombies around every corner.

The Walking Dead also looks really good. The style of the game is like an animated comic page, with hand-drawn lines and outlines around every character. The world is also quite lush and full of detail. The best example of this would be the parts of the story that take place in Savannah. Each building, street, bush, tree, and pile of festering corpses is quite detailed and make sense in overall organization. You can't get a close look at most of it due to the invisible walls everywhere, but what you can see looks great.
